An enlarged copy of a very old photograph probably taken in the 1870s or early 1880s. it shows, at the left, the full length of these recently built houses (built 1867/1868), the entrance to Hamilton Road and the three houses of Hamilton Terrace, of which only one remains. Approaching the Railway the road narrowed considerably, much more so than today. The cause was the extent of the gardens of New England Farmhouse, hidden behind the trees which also conceal from view the small cottages which still stand leading up to York Grove. Fortunately the house has been preserved. At the right was empty land as the houses of Lancaster Villas were built many years later. All houses, on both sides, are now part of Old Shoreham Road.
